Update:

A driver, 36 year old Efrain Rodriguez, accused of hitting and critically injuring a teenage pedestrian in the Bronx has been charged with with striking 17 Amaru Millin in the Bronx last Friday morning.

The teen suffered swelling to the brain and had to have part of his scalp removed.

Rodriguez, according to NYPD, was speeding, going over 45 miles an hour, and astonishingly fleeing a previous crash when he struck Amaru.

It’s been reported that Rodriguez had taken methadone before the crash,  not to mention16 prior drivers license suspensions.

“He didn’t bother checking on the kid,” an eyewitness said. “The U-Haul guy, tried to flee  the scene. Me and some other guys told him ‘don’t move the car, get the hell out of the car, you aren’t leaving,'”.

“I saw the kid crossing the street. When the kid went to cross the street this U-Haul truck was speeding and it hit the kid and he landed over there,” a woman said.

According to New York car accident lawyer, Paul Ajlouny, “If Rodriguez was driving while under suspension and he was also under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the charges are valid. He  should of had his license suspended permanently.”
